What is the difference between formant frequencies and pitch frequency?

Yes, F0 (the fundamental frequency) is the acoustic correlate of pitch (which is a perceptual concept). The fundamental frequency F0 is also the first harmonic H1 of the sound. If F0 is 100 Hz, the ...

Do language models ignore word order in the context?

While there are some context models that are unordered (Latent Semantic Analysis, some semantic word-vector approaches), that's not what you seem to be talking about. Instead, I think the critical ...

What is the difference between formant frequencies and pitch frequency?

There is a limited sense in which F0 (which is the acoustic property perceived as pitch) and F1-F5 are not independent, which is that if you have a tiny larynx (high F0), given the nature of human ...

Should compounded words through agglutination be treated as unigrams or n-grams?

For parsing: if the word is already in your 'dictionary' then treat it as a 'unigram'; but if it is new to you then treat it as an 'ngram'. If you are doing semantic statistics on a corpus then you ...

Should compounded words through agglutination be treated as unigrams or n-grams?

How do ASR systems cope with noise?

In my experience, speech-recognition systems do quite a bit of preprocessing on the signal before trying to interpret it; part of that is getting rid of the noise. The key is, most speech signals are ...

Help with distributional analysis of verb phrases

As I understand the terms, the distribution of a VP would be the X and Y in a constituent [ X VP Y ]. However, affixes associated with auxiliary verbs might count as part of the X rather than part of ...

Different discounting methods with SRILM toolikt

GT is SRILM's default. In fact, I think using -addsmooth 0 just gives you default GT smoothing (unfortunately?). To directly use GT discounting, simply include no discounting argument. The number at ...
